The picture above is a computer simulation which shows the map of the equipotentials of the E-Field around the EHD-FS
picture above shows the map of the hydrostatic pressure of the
medium such as air or aether, induced by the non-uniform E-Field
around the EHD-FS. You may notice that the hydrostatic pressure
(which can be compared to aerodynamic pressure) is lower on the
upper surface of the cupola than on the inner surface of the
cupola. This can be compared to a conventional airplane wing with
the extrados ( upper surface of the wing ) and the intrados (
lower surface of the wing ). This differential pressure is the
direct cause of the EHD-FS lift.
The diagram below shows the curve of this hydrostatic pressure above the surface of the cupola along the red line. You may see also the speed vectors (the small blue arrows) of the medium around the EHD-FS. When the speed vector is high the pressure is low, so the EHD-FS uses the "Coanda effect" applied to EHD for generating its own lift...
